Fourteen films have been produced by the Foundation through 2009 including eight, which are focused on the rescue of Jewish fugitives by non-Jews during the Holocaust. These films document extraordinary acts of courage by ordinary people in Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland and Scandinavian countries.

More recent programs were filmed in Macedonia and Croatia, which reflect local community efforts to resolve ongoing ethnic and religious conflicts through dialogue instead of war, and one which documents the 70 year Soviet era Gulag system

Our films have been shown by many U.S. public television stations, at museums including the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington,DC, at universities, embassies, faith-based organizations, the Smithsonian Institution, Embassies, highschools, and at public events in France and Israel.

The films have also been exhibited at national and international film competitions and have won Gabriel, Telly, Aegis, and CINE Golden Eagle Awards. Volunteer narrators of the films have included Liv Ullmann, Eli Wallach, Alan Alda, Theodore Bikel, Irene Papas, Uta Hagen, Marvin Kalb and Bettina Gregory.
